Private Chinese Lessons:
Hills Learning’s curriculum for private Chinese lessons comprises both language and cultural instruction. Our main goal for Chinese private lessons is to develop conversational skills, but we also specialize in test prep, cultural etiquette, or just general language acquisition. Lessons are usually held at the student’s residence or at our center. We’ve taught kids from 6 months to 16 years old, so it’s never too late to start looking into Mandarin language instruction for your child!

Private lessons follow our SWIRL method of combining all five language skills (Speaking, Writing, Intonation, Reading and Listening). Classes are a mix of language instruction combined with fun activities, games, and songs. Basic vocabulary and grammar, along with the pinyin pronunciation system and simplified Chinese characters, are taught to children of all ages.

Online Chinese Classes:
Hills Learning uses Adobe Connect software for our online Chinese programs. Specially developed for online training, this platform allows our tutors to teach with blackboards, sharing functions, online quiz capability, and other useful tools. The maximum amount of students in an online class is 8.

Chinese & Chess Summer Camp:
This summer, we are teaming up with Chess Educators to provide a unique summer camp experience for boys and girls (ages 5-12) - combine Mandarin Chinese immersion instruction with an interactive Chess program. The program takes place at Léman Manhattan Prep School, in the Financial District of NYC (close to Wall Street).

Kids will participate in fun, engaging activities, and they start off the day with a morning wakeup physical activity. In the afternoon, they get engaged in playing Chess and learning fun and effective strategies. All students must sign up for 2 weeks minimum. They can also take the camp for 4 weeks and receive a discount.

Our Chinese language instruction is fun and effective. We follow a textbook designed specifically for children learning Chinese. All language skills are developed, from writing and reading, to speaking and listening. Through interactive games and activities, the students learn the basics of this incredible language.

The chess camp provides an interactive and hands-on approach for kids to learn chess. Chess camp activities include chess instruction and lessons, a chess lab which includes worksheets, problem solving, and more tactics. Kids will also participate in class tournament games with notation and clocks making the camp an exciting and rewarding experience.
